The Most Common Sleep Disorders

Insomnia, sleep apnea, periodic limb movements, restless leg syndrome and REM sleep behavior disorder are some of the most common sleep disorders. Timothy Grant, Medical Director of Baptist Sleep Center at Baptist Outpatient Services, says between nine and ten percent of the population has chronic insomnia, which means it is lasting for more than a month. "It is very common that if you just talk to a hundred people on the sidewalk, fifty percent of them would probably say at some time in the last year they had problems with their sleep," he says.
